COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Um das Thema "Granit" im Bier noch mehr zu verankern, beschlossen wir 2008 erstmals ein GRANIT BOCKBIER einzubrauen, das in alten Granitsteintrgen vergoren wird. Perfekte Vorraussetzungen fr ein solches Bier, bietet das Sudhaus aus dem Jahre 1929. Whrend der Hauptgrung in alten Granitbottichen hat das Gestein Zeit seine Geschichte an das Bier weiter zu geben. Um auf Temperatur zu kommen starten wir diesen Proze mit glhenden Granitzwecken. Die Steine werden ber offenem Feuer erhitzt und khlen dann schlagartig in der Wrze ab. Die Bierinhaltstoffe karamellisieren und die Hefe erhlt optimale Grbedingungen. Zustzlich wird die Hefe ganz klassisch "aufgezogen" d. h. von Kbel zu Kbel geschttet um diese zu belften. Dank der offenen Grbottiche knnen wir die Krusendecke abschpfen und somit unedle Hopfenbitterstoffe entfernen. Daraus resultiert ein dunkler Bocktyp mit schnen Karamell- und Rstaromen und einem wunderbaren Hopfenbuket. Nach ausreichender Lagerung in den alten Gewlbe-kellern, ziehen wir den Bock bereits im Juli auf die Flasche, damit bis Weihnachten eine Nachreifung stattfinden kann.

Hazy brown in color. Smoke, caramel, malt on the nose. Smoke, flat, ash trey, chemical and metal flavors. As you might notice from the last two descriptors, I didnt like this very much. Not so much.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - SEP 16, 2010
Bottle. Clear amber/brown with a foamy light tan head that sticks to the sides of the glass. Aroma of caramel, brown sugar, bread and nutty. The flavor is very malty with out being overly sweet, not really much bitterness to speak of and no alcohol taste. Medium to full body with mild carbonation and a thick lush mouth feel. Very good German style lager, lots of malt flavors and not too sweet.

drpimento (3530) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 5, 2010
Guess Ill never learn. Opened a gusher near my desktop. Luckily a mess everywhere except the pc.Poured with a smallish tan head that settle to a light cover which lasted and a little lace. Aroma is toffee, malt, a little molasses and dark ripe fruit. Flavors like aroma and very malty sweet. Of course with a beer this sweet the body is very full and thick with good carbonation. Finish is like flavor and of medium to long duration with a bit of alcohol at the end.

Aroma: Molasses, brown sugar, earthy yeast. Fizzy beige head, gone soon. Oily lacing. Same color as root beer, but opaque. Flavor follows nose with a little alcohol. Decidedly sweet. Medium-heavy body. Moderate carbonation. Foamy, pleasant mouthfeel. Finish is sweet with a minor presence of alcohol. Decent.

(500 ml bottle from Bootleggers) Pours brown with three fingers of tan head. Aroma of brown sugar, chocolate, honey and vanilla. Mouthfeel smooth, feels pretty filtered, very lightly fizzy. Flavor of chocolate, brown sugar, honey and vanilla. Light bitter bite in finish. Nice - malty and rich.

MrRain (472) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 9, 2010
500ml bottle poured into a lager glass. HG looks like a good bock, being brown with a tint of red. The head is a little thin though. The aroma is nicely sweet with floral touches, raisins and alcohol. Umm bock! It has that dark fruit and alcohol flavor so inherent to the style. The body is a tad thin but not detrimentaly so. The finish is a sweet and syrupy.

notalush (5856) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 24, 2010
Ruby beer with a creamy, off-white head - kind of an earthy aroma for a bock - a lot of sweet date, raisin, treacle, dough - a moderate acidic tang - smooth, creamy mouthfeel - not as sweet as the aroma suggests, but still loaded with raisin, fig, caramel, toffee - some noble hops and moderate acidity do a decent job of cutting it, but it borders on cloying after a while, especially as it warms - I like my bocks sweet, though, so I dont have an issue - quite complex.

Scauca (490) - Lovere, ITALY - MAY 5, 2010
At the brewery. Clear mahogany with a nice tan head. Aroma is sweet malty, caramel, sweet chocolate. Flavour of burnt sugar, sweet. Overall nice but nothing special.
